used racking for sale

Do you have used racking for sale?


If you have used racking for sale then we want to hear from you. We are always in the market for medium to large parcels of quality used pallet racking or longspan shelving and we can arrange to take it down and transport it if required.

If you have a warehouse full of industrial racking that you don’t need then the thought of getting rid of it can seem like a daunting one, but we will happily give you as much guidance as you need. The value of used warehouse racking is based on a number of criteria:

  • The condition of the racking. We will need you to send us a few clear, close up photos so that we can see what your used racking looks like.
  • The manufacturer of the racking. Popular makes such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack and PSS are are always of interest, but we will listen to all offers if the quality and quantity are right. If you aren’t sure what type of pallet racking you have, we will be able to identify it from the photos.
  • The size, quantity and duty of the upright frames. We need to know the height and depth of the frames (in millimetres), how many of the you have, and the duty of the frames. The duty might be stamped on the frames- M (medium), S (standard), H (heavy duty) or E (extra heavy duty) are examples of what you might expect to find.
  • The size, quantity and load capacity of the horizontal beams. The size of the beams is the clear entry measurement- the space between the upright frames when beams are in place. The load capacity might be on load notices at the end of each run, or otherwise if you can tell us the height of the front face of the beam, and whether the beam is a box or open section, we may be able to calculate how much weight they can take.

If you need us to drop the racking and stack it for transportation, we have SEIRS qualified engineers who can do this for you. The cost of this service would be deducted from the value of your racking. We can also arrange transport from any UK mainland address if required. We have recently bought parcels of used pallet racking from customers in Keighley, Dumfries, Swansea, Barnsley and Croydon. If you would prefer to deliver the racking to us, you would be welcome to do so, provided it is staked and banded to our specifications.

If you have used racking for sale, call us now on 0800 612 3210. If preferred, you can use the enquiry form to send us as many details as you can and we will reply to you quickly.

used racking

Which used racking frames do I need?


There are a huge range of used racking frames available and finding the appropriate materials for your specific requirements isn’t always straightforward. Our team are always happy to offer you as much help and advice as you need, but here is some guidance which might help you find what you are looking for.

A pallet racking frame is made up of two upright legs, joined together with horizontal and diagonal bracing (in a zig zag pattern) and with footplates attached. To create a single bay of warehouse racking you would need two frames and at least four beams, the horizontal bars that your pallets would sit on.

There are at least 20 different manufacturers of industrial racking and almost none of their components are compatible with each other. So, if you don’t know whether you have Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack or any other make, the first place to look would be our “identify my racking” page, where you can find photos of many leading brands of pallet racking. If this doesn’t help, send us some clear close up photos of your racking and we can usually tell you what you have.

The depth measurement is very important in finding the frames that you need, this is taken from outside edge to outside edge of the uprights. 900mm and 1100mm are by far the most common sizes, but others such as 1050mm, 700mm and 1200mm are sometimes used. Older pallet racking, particularly Dexion Speedlock may also have measurements in imperial sizes, such as 3ft (914mm) and 3ft 6in (1067mm). If you are looking to add bays to your existing racking then the frames you buy must be exactly the same depth.

We can usually supply frames in heights from 2000mm to 10000mm and possibly even higher. Standard heights are in 500mm increments but if you need a specific height please let us know and we can cut the frames down accordingly. Tall frames are often made up of two piece of upright spliced together, with a heavier duty section at the bottom.

The load capacity of the frames is determined by the duty of the frame and the height of the first beam level. The duty of the frame is often stamped on the upright, it could be a letter (M- medium, SD- standard duty, H- heavy duty etc) or a number (Apex frames will be UK8, UK12, UK16 or UK20). Please let us know if you need to match existing frames, or if you know the maximum weight you will be putting in each bay.

We can supply individual upright legs, often to replace one which has been damaged. If this is the case, we need to know the duty of your existing frames so that we can supply a compatible replacement. Bracing can also be bought separately if you need to replace a bent piece.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to place an order or to discuss your options. Alternatively you can send us the details of what you are looking for on the enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

 

dexion shelving

Dexion shelving or Dexion racking- what do I need to order?


Dexion shelving is a name sometimes used for Dexion racking, or pallet racking to use the generic name. Buying it can be a complicated business if you aren’t familiar with the specific terms and the way it works, but we can help you to find the right warehouse storage solution for your business.

People will often ask for Dexion racking when actually they want warehouse racking from a completely different (and non-compatible) manufacturer. If you send us a photo of the racking you have, we can identify the racking system and then give you a quote for compatible materials. Apex, Link 51, Redirack and PSS are all popular industrial racking makers that we always have in stock and we can usually source less common systems such as Hilo, Sperrin and Stow.

The size of the frames and beams that you need will depend on the dimensions of the space you have available and size of the pallets that you are storing. UK pallets are 1200mm x 1000mm and Euro pallets are 1200mm x 800mm, but if you are storing non-standard pallets or non-palletised items we can adjust standard pallet racking sizes to accommodate your stock. Our helpful and knowledgeable team are happy to spend as much time as you need to get the right warehouse racking for your business.

If you are actually looking for Dexion shelving, we have huge stocks of timber and wire mesh decking to suit any pallet racking dimensions.

We can deliver to any UK mainland address (we have orders going to Liverpool, Falkirk, Newcastle and Bournemouth in the next week) and we also have fully qualified installation engineers available, no matter what size the job is.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 or send us a brief message on our enquiry form and we will get back to you quickly.

buy used pallet racking

Buy used pallet racking, industrial shelving and much more


If you need to buy used pallet racking, industrial shelving or any other type of warehouse storage equipment, we can help you to get exactly what you need. Customers find us in a number of different ways, and what they are looking for can vary widely, but we give every customer the best service we can, no matter what they are looking for. These are a few examples of recent enquiries:

  1. A customer in Newport wanted some used pallet racking for his warehouse. A Google search led him to our website where he selected the sizes and quantities he needed and placed an order online. When his order came through to us, the configuration didn’t look right, so we gave him a call and soon established that both the sizes and quantities weren’t right for what he needed. We corrected the order, supplied some used Redirack and the customer was very happy with the racking that he received.
  2. We had a call from a customer after another business on his industrial estate in Leeds recommended us to him. He just needed a short run of industrial racking to store both palletised and hand loaded materials for his business. We had used Dexion racking in suitable sizes, with timber decking for the hand loaded elements. We supplied and installed the racking quickly, helping to create extra space in the customer’s warehouse in time for his upcoming peak trading period.
  3. We received an enquiry form through our website, from a company in Watford. They had attached a plan of the warehouse racking that they were looking for and asked for a price for both new and used pallet racking. We provided them with quotes for all materials (10 runs of 6 bays of racking, each with 4 beam levels) in used Link 51 racking and new AR racking, along with column guards and pallet support bars for all bays. They were very happy with the service they received from us and decided to buy used pallet racking, which arrived just 7 working days from confirmation of the order and has now been installed.
  4. After an online search for longspan shelving, a small business in Edinburgh found our number and gave us a call. They needed runs of heavy duty shelving to go round 3 sides of a new warehouse they  were moving to. Our longspan comes in so many size options that it was easy for us to find a solution that made maximum use of the storage space they had available. Some of the items they intended to store were heavy, but our longspan can take in excess of 500kg per shelf in almost all beam sizes and so this was easily solved. We were also able to supply warehouse safety steps for them so that they could make full use of the 3500mm height available.

So, as you can see, wherever you are in the UK and whatever your warehouse storage requirements are, we can help you to find the best solution at a great price. Call us on 0800 612 3210, send us an enquiry form or order online now!

warehouse storage

Warehouse storage is more than just pallet racking


When you think about warehouse storage, pallet racking might be the first thing that springs to mind. Warehouse racking, particularly used pallet racking, is our speciality and the biggest part of our business, but there are many other ways to store your stock that we can help you with.

For non-palletised items, we can supply longspan shelving, a heavy duty system that works in much the same way as pallet racking, with upright frames and horizontal beams. Longspan beams have a z profile (rather than the box section of racking beams), so that a chipboard deck will sit securely between them, and with support bars under the chipboard they can take well in excess of 500kg per shelf for almost all beam sizes. This robust and versatile system is available in a wide range of sizes, so we can help you find the best layout to make full use of the space you have for storage of your stock.

If you have valuable or hazardous materials to store, our new range of high security cages will protect your stock and come in a range of sizes to suit your space. They are designed as a modular panel system and so can be adapted to the shape and size that you need. You can see this product on our website here.

You may also be looking for storage options for your employees to keep their personal items safe. We have a huge range of lockers that we can supply in many different sizes, colours and for a different working environments.

Whatever you warehouse storage requirements are, we can help you to find the best solution for your business. Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to discuss you options or to place an order. Alternatively, you can send us an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.
